Thank all of you for your support. I do have to test my blood sugar levels but only 2 or 3 days per week. The concern was that on the original test my blood sugar was 122. On the day of my glucose tolerance test the first check showed in at 124. Both of these were fasting. After the first vial of blood was taken I was given a very sweet drink and then my levels were checked at thirty minutes twice and at 1 hour each until I had been stuck a total of 6 times...ouch there. What was the great concern was this.

At the initial stick my sugar level was 124. 30 min after the sweet drink the level had reached 220. 30 min later it had reached 265. The levels began to fall then and at the 4th hour the level had fallen to 60 which was way low. I don't understand it all but I got the idea that one problem was the high level so quickly and the huge swing. At any rate there is no concern as long as I continue to exercise and watch my diet. My gym work couldn't hurt because I went in not fasting today. I ate a full breakfast at 6:30 a.m. and went to the gym. Did 1 1/2 miles on the treadmill increasing incline and speed to the point that I did the last 3/4 mile at 4 degree incline and 3.7 mph. Then did 1 mile on the eliptical and all 10 of my strength exercises with 6 of my strength exercises the second rotation. My blood sugar at 10:15 was 83. Tolerance is 70 to 105. So!!!

Oh yes if someone wants to explain ASI to these folks I fall well within the percentage spread there.

So for all you folks with any type problem in you genetic background, PLEASE stay on top of it. Start watching those things early. You will be much happier and healthier.

I remember that nasty syurpy blood sugar test drink... Some of the nastiest stuff...

I was diagnosed with borderline hypoglocemia when i was a teenager... I apparently grew out of it.
